“Nice roadside diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Excellent breakfast with very quick service. It was relatively quiet when we stopped in. Even got a floor show from the owners' fifteen month old daughter. Highly recommend.

“Great breakfast and lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Their pancakes cover the whole plate and the plate is 12 inches across. They are also surprisingly light and fluffy. The portions here are generous and reasonably priced. My pancake, coffee and sausage came to 5.25. They make good sandwiches and in they also make pizzas and generous chicken wings. However, they do not have other dinner entrees. They sell ice cream and ice cream desserts and seasonal pies and cake. Cinnamon buns are also available but I haven't had one. A good place to stop for breakfast and sandwiches. They are building a new restaurant next door which looks like it will be a much larger facility.
The present place is limited by having to go outdoors to reach the bathrooms.
They also have wifi!

“Simple surroundings but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Young couple run this and are trying very hard. Always busy at breakfast and through lunch and early evening. Limited menu but they have great homemade burgers and also make good pizza from scratch. Need to be patient with your order since it is made from scratch. Offer some bakery items - sticky buns very good. New building under construction; hopefully they will expand their menu.

“Pizza Delightful, Finally!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Once we received our pizza it was really good. Wood fired pizza with great sauce. However it took 40 plus minutes to get after we ordered. They weren't very busy. The pizza was extremely hot which is a good thing, but the knives were not sharp enough to cut crust!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

On our way to Fallingwater this morning, we passed through this little town and saw this busy little cafe. We actually turned the car around to give it a try. Good coffee and espresso. Their breads are all homemade, biscuits, muffins, bread. And were delicious. The food was fresh, the service friendly. We even got cookies to go for later! Very happy surprise in the most unexpected of places.
